Visiting Lasell College scored ten runs over the final four innings and the Lasers rallied to stun Dean College, 14-11, in non-league baseball action on Wednesday afternoon.
HOW IT HAPPENED:
After scoring seven runs in the fourth highlighted by RBI singles from Jeff Sharnick (Stratford, Conn.), Andrew Dirito (Plymouth, Mass.) and Daniel Anderson (Boston, Mass.), Dean looked to be in control, ahead 8-3 after four innings.
The Lasers slowly chipped away at that deficit beginning with a single run in the fifth and then three more in the sixth – two of which came on a double by Chris Maringo.
Maringo was a factor again, providing the game-tying run in the eighth and then Joe Sullivan put Lasell in front 11-9 with a two-run double.
Dean got within a run in the eighth when Thomas Troy (Norwalk, Conn.) scampered home on a passed ball but the Lasers added three insurance runs in the ninth including another RBI from Maringo.
The Bulldogs pushed a run across in the ninth when Troy singled home Landon Fish (New Port Richey, Fla.) with two outs but Chris O'Connor who came on in relief and picked up the win, was able to record the final out.
INSIDE THE NUMBERS:
Fish had three hits and three runs scored for Dean, while Sharnick, Anderson and Troy all had two hits.
Sullivan had three hits and five RBI for the Lasell, while Maringo added three hits and four RBI.
The Bulldogs are back in action on Thursday when they host Coast Guard at 3:00 PM.
